Re: Jeffy on Jeffy micro: is it broken or do i remember wrong?

Jeffy/Weasel lasers are made up of a few shots over time, each hitting for part of the total damage. In the time between these shots the turret does not adjust it's angle to stay on target if the target and/or jeffy is moving.

Re: Unit Custom Range Rings Widget

This is... bad... Why is everything in the config a string? Is it to support old fbi format? Everything being a string is needlessly complicating the code*, especially the 'explode' function, which looks awful. The widget itself is also pretty bad. - GetAllUnits on every drawframe (I'd probably use ...

Re: Another balance considerations: reloaded

Lets not forget that they are pretty much the same cost of a stumpy or raider. Panther: 307m + 4200e/50 = 391 Raider: 211m + 2200e/50 = 255 Stumpy: 201m + 1921e/50 = 240 If the panthers and core's T1 units go in a head on fight, the panthers just destroy Cost-for-cost, core T1 units beat panthers h...

Re: Problem with TraceScreenRay

TraceScreenRay always checks for intersections with units/features, no matter the arguments. If 'onlyCoords' is on and the ray intersects with a unit or feature, it returns the point of intersection on the collision volume (rather than the unit or feature ID). I made a feature request some time ago,...

Re: ability to change fraction ingame

I think that currently the inter-widget communication is done via WG-tables. is it better to use SetTeamRulesParam? Do not ever use any code that looks even remotely like the WG related stuff that was added to gui_faction_change/initial_queue. Seriously. The way to do it is to either poll the exist...

Morph == Destroyed and at the same time a completely new unit is spawned at the same position with the old commands, giving the appearance of just one unit changing types.

Yes. This is what ghost radar uses.

Re: 1x1 Casualties widget

I wonder if there is any way to determine when a ghosted building was busted outside of LOS in a non-spectator widget-based way. Also, does anyone know if radar blips and los-sighted units share same uID? Or to detect when blips get killed? You can use :UnitEntered/LeftRadar in the same manner as :...

Re: BA 7.68 - fix commander/con movement

Not sure if this is an engine or BA issue, but bombers do not auto-target dragon's claw and dragon's maw when they patrol or attack in an area. They do respond to manual bombing commands though. When the turrets pop up, they also start bombing it. BA has a gadget which sets dragon claws to neutral ...

Cannot reproduce. Thanks for reporting but I dont think it should be disabled based on a single complain. It should be done when more users have problems ofc. As far as I see there is room for performance optimization in that widget though. The widget creates the exact same display list every frame...

Mark out the stretch of wall you want and watch in awe as the T2 conbots randomly construct portions of it. In fact get them to just build one bit of wall and gaze in wonder as they build it, then reclaim it. :roll: I saw this quite a while ago already. So I think its an engine issue but not a new ...

Re: sonar changes in q to dragon eye (7.66 - test417)

The context build widget is poorly written, the main problem being that it permanently switches your build option each time, forgetting what you originally selected. Here's a scenario: - You want to build a sonar - You select the sonar from the list - By chance the the buildmenu is 'over' land, and ...

Re: Unit Morphing at selectable location

My main advice: Do not use a widget! I'd personally use both a gadget and a widget. The gadget would handle just the command related business, and do no drawing or graphical anything. The widget would handle drawing the ghosts, highlighting invalid positions, possibly highlighting valid positions, ...
